Call for Papers -- Industrial Track

Important dates:

* Paper submission deadline: 15 March 2009 (HARD DEADLINE)
* Acceptance notification: 29 March 2009
* Camera-ready copy deadline: 11 April 2009

IEEE WoWMoM 2009 is soliciting original and previously unpublished research papers from industry researchers and professionals for a one-day Industry Session. Specific topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

* Conversational Mobile Multimedia

* (Personal) Mobile Broadcast Delivery and Applications

* Mobile broadcast implementation issues (including, but not limited to, DVB-H, MBMS, DMB, ATSC-M/H, MediaFLO, etc.)

* Mobile P2P distribution of real-time Multimedia

* Scalable Media architectures for mobile networks

* Social Multimedia and co-creation

* 3D Video modeling and applications

* Context-based real-time media

* Semantic description and scene context extraction of real-time media

* Multimodal sensing and context.

The Industry Session track is intended to specially highlight system experiences and proofs-of-concept in the areas above. Like regular papers, the Industry Session papers will undergo a review process by an International TPC and will appear in the conference proceedings.

However, the selection criteria for Industry Session papers are slightly different. In particular, papers should describe applications, prototypes or experiences of clear industry relevance. Papers with narrow algorithmic focus or only high-level design details are discouraged. A key goal of this session is to present systems-oriented research that exposes the academic and research communities to real-life issues and problems being faced in industry. Accordingly, papers will be evaluated, less on the novelty of specific algorithmic content, but by the originality and general applicability of insights that can be inferred from the authors' implementation experience.

Papers must be formatted according to the guidelines given in http://www.ics.forth.gr/wowmom09/papersubmission.html and submitted by the authors to BOTH the Industry Chairs by midnight US Pacific Time of 15 March 2009.
